Hey Jess..

I definitely DO NOT hate Brent. I liked Keith's pure piano sound better but I loved Brent's vocals and ability. Way better than Donna!

Anyone could have sang better than Donna - but you've been through that subject enough here I'm sure ;-)

Yes, there have been novel-length passages written on Donna's caterwauling...but I did think Brent's harmony background vocals were especially good and really made certain songs sound better because of it. He also was quite a good keyboardist....I only objected to some of the "candy"-sounding synth choices he made, whereas Keith usually had that great traditional acoustic piano sound.
